Vintage Pantone

colors-6 colors-4 colors-1colors-4 Color study from 1692 by an artist known only as A. Boogert.  Looks like the original Pantone swatches.  I’ve seen this before with color wheels and theory. Time to Google. Until then, the rest of the yummy color blocks are located at Colossal

I’m addicted to vintage advertising. I found this piece in a cigar box at the Grayslake Antique Market. The thoughtful design, unique illustration and of course the printed details made me buy the entire lot. It’s all in the details right? Silver shimmery ink for the S. C. Schwartz Co. Must have been some fancy pants.

I’m not sure about the kick in the butt message though.
